Find all the solutions in the interval [0,2pi).
2sin2x  sqrt(2) = 0
sin2x = sqrt(2)/2
I'm confused by the double angle. Please help.

so continue...
sin2x =√2/2
2x = 45º or 135º
x = 22.5º or x = 67.5º
in radians: x = pi/8 or 3pi/8

But my calculator also shows 9pi/8 and 11pi/8. Why do you have to add pi?

Trig  Reiny, Wednesday, December 3, 2008 at 8:22am
ahh, smart calculator you got there.
the period of sin2x is pi or 180 degrees
so we have to add pi to each of our answers until we are no longer in the given domain.
so x = pi/8, 3pi/8, 9pi/8 and 11pi/8
I should have taken care of that in my first post , sorry
